Rock n' Roll snake hits off more than he could chew

This Rock n' Roll snake bit off a bit more than he could chew.

In fact - on this day (5th June) in 1977 - the food bit back!

A rat being fed to Alice Cooper's boa constrictor inflicted such a serious wound that the singer's snake died.

He was Cooper's co-star of his live act so the music icon held auditions for a replacement.

They eventually settled on a new snake called 'Angel'.
